Abelian objects

Mary Gray

Vol. 23 (1967), No. 1, 69–78
Abstract

In a category with a zero object, products and coproducts and in which the map

     (     )
(1   0)
0  1
A+ B   −→   A × B

is an epimorphism, we define abelian objects. We show that the product of abelian objects is also a coproduct for the subcategory consisting of all the abelian objects. Moreover, we prove that abelian objects constitute abelian subcategories of certain not-necessarily abelian categories, thus obtaining a generalization of the subcategory of the category of groups consisting of all abelian groups.
